  • We become good at what we practice and most of us are experts at practicing distraction. We live in a society that trains us to multi-task and jump from one thing to another in an uncontrolled way. The great panacea for a world plagued by distraction is learning and practicing the art of concentration. Living as a Hindu monk for 10 years Dandapani was trained in understanding the mind. There he learned and practiced the fine art of bringing concentration into everyday life. In this talk, Dandapani will share spiritual tools to learn to create unwavering focus in our lives and the boundless benefits that result from it.


    Dandapani is a Hindu priest, speaker on self-development and an entrepreneur.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

    We never taught how to concentrate because the system wants us to be distracted, so you will buy more, will throw away more to rebuy, will eat food from industries, will not think in no case at the consequences of your behaviors,will study and pay to be in debt for years to the system since high-schools,will recognize people who is not so in debt or submissive to the system as enemies of the society, will die for some Elite's ideal in a war you don't have started, will be more inclined to disease and illness so you could buy from big pharma,will see more specialists and doctors than friends which are all unconscious part of the in-debt system, will drive for thousands of miles and you'll never ask to yourself where this gasoline come from,will see people smoking cannabis as addicted and smoking tobacco as cool reckless ones,will buy guns for self defense because they tell you have the right to do so and not how much they gain from it, and will never learn how to meditate if not with a "new age guru" running affiliate links and his own shop/coach sessions on his infos, or worse selling the secret everyone has access just when they pay 1500$ for a course like they're doing with trascendental meditation (advertising it even in tv, guested by Ellen's channel) and that because they taught you well on how to not see the business and the frauds behind your backs. Did any bankers go to jail where they caused a world crisis? of course not, everyone has forgotten it. i HOPE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WILL OPEN THEIR EYES AND FIGHT AGAINST THE LIES BEHIND OUR SOCIETIES!
